This is why she lies to her kids about it.

Drew Barrymore does a great job as an actress, but she also does an amazing job as a mom. Having two young children and playing a role in a horror series isn’t simple at all, but the star manages to make it work. Sometimes, you just have to lie!

When the 43-year-old actress made her appearance on the red carpet to promote the new season of Santa Clarita Diet, she told us all about her daily struggle.

Drew revealed she can’t let her kids (Olive, 5, and Frankie, 3) know about the twisted TV show because they’re simply too young for this kind of thing.

“I have to lie to my kids all the time. I would shower at work because it was head-to-toe and I didn’t want to come home that way to my children, but I would always miss spots. They’d be like, ‘What is this?’ like three times a week. I was like, ‘I’m painting!’” 

Santa Clarita Diet is about a woman, Sheila played by Drew Barrymore, who goes through a dramatic transformation that sends her down a road of death and destruction. This Netflix series is all about bloodbaths, so you can imagine how the actress would look like after a day of shooting!
